With support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, glacier ice installation Ice Watch aims to encourage public action against climate change at COP21. Acclaimed visual artist Olafur Eliasson, in collaboration with distinguished geologist Minik Rosing, this Monday announced the upcoming launch of a major public artwork on display during the UN Climate Summit (COP21) in Paris. Supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies and realized in partnership with creative sustainability charity Julie’s Bicycle, Ice Watch will showcase 80 tonnes of ice from a fjord outside Nuuk, Greenland with the aim of inspiring public action against climate change.
